Attention all local artists. The Paul Mall Alley Display Project seeks to feature the work of six new visual artists throughout 2024 and 2025.
The display units at 642 Queen St. E. in the Sault’s downtown provide an opportunity for local and regional artists to have an ongoing public space to display and promote their artwork, according to a media release issued by the City of Sault Ste. Marie.
Artists are invited to submit one portfolio piece to be digitally reproduced and displayed along with the artist’s biography, contact, website, and social media details in the display units.
Artists working in a broad range of two dimensional or shallow relief media, including painters, photographers, collage artists, mosaic and graffiti artists are encouraged to participate. They must be able to provide digital copies of their chosen artwork meeting the specifications listed in the Call for Artists guidelines. All artworks will be reviewed, and selections will be made by a project selection group.
Selected artists will receive an artist’s fee of $600 for a 12-month display period. If an extended showing is possible, artists will receive an additional $50 for each additional month that the artwork is on display.
Applications will be accepted until Monday, Sept. 25, at 4:30 p.m.
Those interested in participating, can find the application on the City’s website at www.saultstemarie.ca/paulmallproject. For more information, contact Aliesha Moore, Arts and Culture lead at 705-989-8240 or by email at [email protected].
